(Conneaut) — Officials say no children were hurt when a loaded school bus slid partially into a sinkhole on a city street in Ashtabula County, nearly flipping it.

A school official in Conneaut said the pavement collapsed as the bus passed on Monday afternoon, causing the rear wheels to fall into the hole. The angle of the bus in the hole caused problems for rescue workers trying to get the 30 elementary-aged children off the bus.

School superintendent Kent Houston tells The (Ashtabula) Star-Beacon that the kids were more scared than anything. They were transferred to another bus for the ride home. A wrecker was called to extract the bus.

The sinkhole may have been caused by one of the water leaks that have resulted from the extreme weather this winter.
